Visit Worldwide Topsites

Observation of Venus through the telescope.

36 frames to 95% best quality, Gaussian in Registax.
18 frames to 97% best quality, in Registax.

Venus, is magnificent in these images. I have never seen it in such a size through the telescope ever. So big and clear to see through the 8 " telescope, that even passersby who were curious about what I'm watching did not believe it was a planet, but they said it's the Moon. It's true that during that period Venus was at the perfect distance for observation.

But I still don't know why it blue because this color is not true. What intrigues me is that other planets like Jupiter, Saturn and Mars, have their real colors filmed through the telescope. A hunch would be that being so close to the Sun, is too bright and the colors of the camera are probably getting wrong.

 Although you may believe that the pictures are old, from March 2012, only now they were processed, so for me these images are in premiere. In fact all images in new articles are made in the same manner, later, because the amount of videos and the time does not allow me an image processing in the same day, week or even year.
